Dining in Fredericksburg

Dining in Fredericksburg, Texas

I recently spent a weekend in Fredericksburg with Sugarface. We stayed at a secluded cabin rental about 15 minutes away from downtown Fredericksburg with our puppies. It was a welcomed reprieve from a stressful week. I enjoyed the evenings in with him, playing scrabble and watching the dogs go wild on the property. Though we spent a good amount of time at the cabin, we also made time to walk Main St. and to dine at three quaint establishments in Fredericksburg, and I wanted to share them with you!

We brunched at Sunset Grill before heading out to Enchanted Rock for our hiking adventure. We loved our whole experience at Sunset Grill, from sitting outside in their tiny courtyard, to the happy service, and finally to their delicious brunch menu. Sugarface ordered the biscuits and gravy and I the chorizo omelette. We both gobbled up our entrees and made happy plates. Sugarface declared my omelette the best omelette he’s ever had. (And if you’ve seen him judge food, you would know he’s not an easy win.)

On our first night, we had dinner at Otto’s, a recommendation from my friend Amy. We started off with their Flammkuchen (flatbread with crème fraiche, cambozola, gruyère, caramelized onions, arugula candied bacon, aged balsamic). It had all the ingredients I normally love, but I thought the flavors fell a bit flat.

For entrees, I had the Foie Gras “BLT”. (I will order foie gras so long as it’s on the menu.) The deconstructed BLT was uniquely executed. Sugarface loved the tomato jam. He ordered the German classic Duck Schnitzel and we both thought his duck was cooked to perfection. Though the texture was perfect, I wish it was a tad more seasoned. All in all, I can see why Otto’s is a popular dining spot in Fredericksburg; the ambiance and service were warm and inviting. I loved dining on their twinkle lit sidewalk patio.

Tucked in the basement of a sophisticated furniture and home goods store, Vaundeville had a swanky speakeasy feel to it. Jazzy live music was playing as we sat at the bar. Sugarface ordered the French Dip Sandwich and I ordered the Black Truffle Pizza. He said his sandwich the best French Dip he’s had and again he’s not prone to superlatives. The black truffle pizza was my favorite dish of the weekend. They were so generous with their black truffle shavings! It was the perfect meal to end our quiet and pleasurable weekend in Fredericksburg. Thanks again to Amy for this recommendation!

Next time…

It started raining on our way out of Fredericksburg and it foiled our plans of trying out Burger Burger on the patio with our pups. We also were interested in the brisket burgers from Jennie’s Smoked Burgers and Tornado Fries. I guess that means we’ll be coming back to Fredericksburg!

    Yum, it looks like you found awesome food on this trip! I was wondering how this little get away went! Being in a remote cabin sounds really dreamy to me. And I”m envious that Sugarface will play Scrabble! Phil won’t because he is not great at spelling. :(

    • It was very idyllic! I kind of already miss it. Aw, how does Phil feel about having a dictionary on hand? I noticed the host had a bunch of books on her shelves, one of which is a dictionary!

        I’m not sure – I think he’s feel like that was cheating. He pretty much won’t plan ANY word games! His mom is a retired English teacher, though, so I need to go over to her house to get my fix of banangrams and Scrabble. ;)
